Experience the beauty of Mpumalanga from a new angle and height! Hop on board a helicopter and be prepared to be amazed and thrilled.
As you arrive at the hangar you will be warmly greeted by the friendly ground crew, where after you have sorted out all the paperwork and given a short safety briefing, you will be lead out to the helicopter.
Feel the excitement mount as you are firmly strapped into your seat, you will be given a set of head phones also so you can communicate with the pilot during the flight. All too soon it will be up, up and away! Flying in a helicopter is a very unique experience – watching the world below getting smaller and smaller as you rise. Take the opportunity to sit back and relax, and take in the view as you make your way to the Blyde River Canyon area. The canyon is almost 25 kilometres in length and on average 750 metres deep and is known as the third largest canyon in the world, second largest in Africa with the Fish River Canyon just beating it to the post!
Hang on tight as the pilots weave in and out of the magnificent rock formations and almost seem to skim the water of the Blyde River below. You will also come face to face with a waterfall, coming so close that the spray falls on the helicopter! ‘Blyde’ in Dutch means glad or happy, and that is exactly what you will be feeling when you take part in the spectacular experience. But please do not forget to take along your camera to capture all the magnificent vistas.
